People 'sleeping with the light on' after watching Netflix's new horror film
People have said they have been left "sleeping with the light on" after watching Netflix's new horror film, Eerie.
The supernatural film was first released earlier this year, before landing on the streaming service over the summer.
The description for the film reads: "The unexpected and gruesome death of a student threatens the existence of an old Catholic school for girls. Pat Consolacion, the school guidance counsellor, involves herself with the students in the hopes of helping them cope, and at the same time uncover the mysteries of the student's death.
"Most students suspect of the strict and borderline abusive Mother Alice, who also threatened Pat's tenure in the school because of her continuous meddling with the case.
"But Pat's unusual talents lead her to knowing Eri, a former student who's been watching the whole school for years. Piece by piece, Pat uncovers the secret of the school and the monster that it nurtured for the past century"
And, judging from the viewers' reactions, the title seems pretty fitting.
People have said the film left them "terrified" and "sleeping with the light on", as they shared their thoughts on Twitter.

Eerie is on netflix. It is definitely one of the better horror movies Ive seen recently. I feel it doesnt really rely solely on the jumpscares to make it scary, and when it does decide to use jumpscares, there is proper build up that doesnt just shock you. pic.twitter.com/8HSmSSatRM
